Trashed, Wasted, and Completely Crocked...or sometimes mom needs to party too

No, I didn't get drunk last night but I sure feel pretty awful this morning. Last night I hosted a book club meeting. We all read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. If you havent read it and like historically based books, you might want to check into this one. I liked it and even got used to the writting style (the story is given through the view of Death). I didnt finish it though. Pretty bad for a book club meeting AT MY HOUSE! Its good though and takes place in WW2 Germany so you can probably guess the ending... Anyways.
It was an awesome night and we talked about the book for a good 5 to 10 minutes and then of course moved on to more fun/important things to talk about.
People brought snacks and stuff which I always enjoy. However, last night was sure testing my will power. So while everyone munched on fudge, rice crispy treats and taco dip, I had an orange. Not super exciting but I am proud of myself for not giving in.
We ended the night around midnight and I was wired. I wasnt able to fall alseep until about one and then I woke up at 4:30 with my husband and then Makayla go all of us up at 6. I AM TIRED! It was worth it though. I also looked in the mirror and realized I forgot to take my mascara off. So here's a look at me "trashed. Yep thats my water bottle. I got a little dehydrated. And dont mind my zits. I believe they add to the whole effect.

Then I was thinking that this is probably a runway look or something and sorta rocker-ish. So here is my posting a makeup look of the morning. Notice the lack of concealer and lip gloss. I was going for a "natural" sort of look. This is the best face pose I could come up with- so please feel free to judge. I know I look like a middle school girl taking pictures of herself.

So I just want to encourage you to take some time for your self. Everyone needs it and as a mom I don't get it that often. I am super grateful for a husband who is so willing to watch our kids and let me have some fun.
